Dear Mosaic Family, Hope you're doing well on this snowy Boston weekend. I'm still reeling from the amazing fact that Mosaic Boston welcomed 29 new members into the church family today. Praise Jesus!!
I'm so excited to announce that this Sunday, we're launching a brand new sermon series, called "Heroes." We live in a culture intrigued (obsessed?) with superheroes. Hollywood has released at least 40 mega-budget movies in the last decade, most of which have been huge money-makers. What's the deal? We love superpowers and the supernatural. We love seeing good prevail in the battle against evil. We love having a reason for hope in the face of adversity. We love immortality and sacrificial love. We love adventure and risk. We love seeing the powerful hero save the powerless victim and make all things right with the world. As C.S. Lewis said, the classic myths point people to the ultimate, truth Myth. Superhero stories, wrote J.R.R. Tolkien, are the best way-- and sometimes the only way-- of conveying truths that would otherwise remain inexpressible. Myths may be misguided, Tolkien said, but they steer however shakily toward the true harbor. The superhero stories of our day reveal perennial human longings for safety, significant, power, joy, unconditional love--longings only ultimately satisfied by the Ultimate Superhero, Jesus Christ. The story of Christ is at the very heart of history and at the very root of reality.
Be sure to join us tomorrow as we start a new sermon series looking at some of the greatest heroes of the Old Testament and showing how every single one of them needs the Ultimate Superhero.
Praying for you, Pastor Jan
